Plans to Rebuild Inala Civic Centre Get Green Light

Redevelopment of the Inala Civic Centre is finally approved, two years after it went up in flames that destroyed up to 15 stores.

A development application filed by Tripple J.T. Pty Ltd showed the four-storey retail and commercial building will have food and drink outlets, offices, function rooms, and health care services.

The ground level, which will have an arcade-style walkway, will consist of two food and drink outlets, five health care services, and three shops.

Level 1 will be exclusive for health care service tenancies, Level 2 will be for offices, and Level 3 will be dedicated to function facilities and one food and drink outlet.

The health care services, shops, offices and food and drink outlets on Levels 1 to 3 will operate between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. while the function facility and restaurant on Level 4 will operate between 6:00 a.m. and 01:00 a.m.

There are plans to include 16 carparking spaces and a loading area on the western section of the building, in addition to 22 basement staff car parks.

The 2125-sqm site, located at 37 Corsair Avenue is one of the 19 lots that made up the Inala Civic Centre. It contained a medical centre, shops and food and drink outlets, but was destroyed by fire in August 2017 and the site has been vacant since.

According to reports, the fire was likely caused by electrical fault. It took 50 hours to bring the fire under control. The fire caused an estimate $10 million in damage.
